SYNOPSIS

In Solo – Central Java, Mbah Kodok (67) lives without children and wife in a cultural park called “Wisma Seni”. In everyday life, he writes and sings to voice anxiety in the destruction of the balance of nature. On October 8, 2014, the Kodok’s life changed since he married an unseen woman who guarded the forest which he named Setyowati. Through the marriage, Kodok saw the forest in which Setyowati was damaged due to logging and encroachment of land that had been going on since 1998. Mbah Kodok sought to conserve forests which made him confront the interests and affected people. Seeing a difficult situation, he made the story of his child born so that conservation continued with a belief approach.

Di Solo – Jawa Tengah, Mbah Kodok (67) hidup tanpa anak dan istri di sebuah taman budaya bernama “Wisma Seni”. Dalam kesehariannya, ia menulis dan bernyanyi untuk mengutarakan kecemasannya terhadap hancurnya keseimbangan alam. Pada tanggal 8 Oktober 2014, hidup Kodok berubah setelah menikahi seorang wanita tak kasat mata yang melindungi hutan yang ia namai Setyowati. Melalui pernikahan mereka, Kodok melihat hancurnya hutan, yang merupakan Setyowati, dikarenakan oleh penebangan liar dan gangguan lahan yang berlangsung semenjak 1998. Mbah Kodok pun berusaha untuk melestarikan hutan, membuatnya bertentangan dengan kepentingan dan mempengaruhi orang-orang. Melihat keadaan yang sukar, ia melahirkan kisah anaknya sehingga konservasi dapat berlanjut dengan pendekatan kepercayaan.
